Skip to comments.Robbie Gordon of NASCAR Will Not Drive IRL Races Against Danica Patrick, Citing Weight Advantage

Robbie Gordon of NASCAR started the discussion, saying that he wouldn't drive in the Indy Car Racing League series until they do something about Danica Patrick's weight 'advantage.'
'The lighter the car, the faster it goes,' Gordon said. 'Do the math. Put her in the car at her weight, then put me or Tony Stewart in the car at 200 pounds and our cars are at least 100 pounds heavier.'
'I wont race against her until the IRL does something to take that advantage away.'
I glanced at the weight of the weight of the drivers in the Indy Car Series. They are pretty much smallish guys --between 140 and 155 lbs.
He seems to be willing to race against guys who are about 60 pounds less and had no problem with it before.

no this is Robbie Gordon being a BIATCH....
he is crying because a woman would kick his butt in a race and he knows it...
his ego is too fragile.
He should stick to CAUSING wrecks in NASCAR, because that is what he does best....
She wouldn't last too long in a NASCAR race.
With the way race cars suck down fuel, and all the science behind their aerodynamics weight isn't an advantage at all. Robbie's just a whiner.
Gordon is a whiner...
Boo frickin' hoo Robby. Doesn't he race against Jimmy Johnson all the time. He can't weight much more than a buck thirty.
Robbie needs to go back to playing in the dirt.
I am certainly not Robby Gordons biggest fan, but every race I've been in, the car & driver were weighed togehter.
Guess Gordon doesn't realize what a wuss he sounds like.
Maybe Robbie Gordon ought to go on a diet.
I think I heard Nascar equals out the cars..im not sure maybe im wrong but someone said it on ESPN and you know how they are..
I would think her being a hundred would give her advantages but im not a gearhead so not sure but if he didnt have a problem with guys being 50 or 60 less then shut up dude....
A higher IQ!!!
I WAS impressed with Danica.....but then I saw the spread she did for the New York Post (I think it was that mag.) where she is dressed like a slut on the cover. I lost complete respect for her and wish she would set a better example for the young girls who watch her.
She is no better than Paris Hilton.
In related news, New York Knicks Center Jerome Williams says that he will no longer play in NBA games agains Yao Ming, citing height advantage.
In related news, Oakland A's pitcher Barry Zito says that he will no longer play in MLB games agains Vladimir Guerrero, citing strength advantage.
In related news, Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi says that she will no longer participate in debates against Republicans, citing intelligence advantage.
Robby is a whiner and a jerk, but did a real good job in the Paris-Dakar Rally this year. First American to win a stage.
yeah but neither does Robbie Gordon coincidentally....
If Gordon is so concerned about weight... he should drink a quart or two of Ex-Lax before the races to clean out all of the bull$hit whining inside him.
